Teaching Human-Animal Studies: An Interdisciplinary Symposium

Ani­mals are all around us. But what do we actu­al­ly mean when we say “ani­mal”? We are, of course, also ani­mals: human ani­mals.  

In recent years, ani­mals have entered uni­ver­si­ty life, and  schol­ars in fields as diverse as art, philos­o­phy, and reli­gious stud­ies approach ani­mals from dif­fer­ent angles and method­olo­gies. Ani­mals are to some extent invis­i­ble until they enter the realm of the human. Then they become pets, cat­tle, or lab­o­ra­to­ry ani­mals.  

Are you curi­ous? Could this sub­ject enrich your teaching cur­ricu­lum? Then why don’t you join us at Leuphana Uni­ver­si­ty from Jan­u­ary 23 to 25. For fur­ther infor­ma­tion, includ­ing reg­is­tra­tion details, see the pro­gram.
